The Perth-Forrestfield airport rail link is the most expensive public transport project that will carry the fewest number of passengers per taxpayer dollar expended on infrastructure, an analysis by The Weekend Westreveals.
The Barnett Government's centrepiece public transport project, an 8.5km twin-tunnelled rail line from Bayswater to High Wycombe, featuring three stations, will cost $2.2 billion and generate 14,500 passenger boardings per day by 2031.

I remember the Joondalup Railway line far exceeded passenger growth immediately it was opened.
Hong Kong had a lot of money spent on it before the handover now the Airport Train there is amazing.
I think this is a visionary project and because the wrong party are at the helm they are being criticized for it.
If it was Labor the media would whitewash everything and make it look that the Perth Airport Rail Line was the next best thing even in light of number crunchers not seeing the project give a good CBR.
I don't know that they have weighed the numbers in the light of people preferring to leave their vehicle at home rather than pay $30 a day to keep it at the airport. Save yourself over $400 and catch the train!!!!
